She risked her life for honor… And risked her heart for love.
The scions of Crawford’s Dean did not like the family who rented Leona Leonard’s ancestral home, and so they came to tell her. There was something strange going on in that house.
Leona promised to investigate, but she had never attempted anything so daring before – dressing in her brother’s cast-off clothing to scale the walls of Lion’s Gate Manor. Her actions led her to rescue a young, kidnapped child, Lady Christina Deveraux.
Nigel Deveraux, indebted to this bold beauty who risked her life for his young niece, extracted a promise from Leona to contact him should she received any threats of revenge. Leona readily promised, little believing any threats would occur.
But when danger forces her to seek sanctuary at Deveraux’s ancestral castle, she discovered the passion beneath his honorable intentions … and a soul-searing desire that would flame into a breathtaking love!
